y separately published work icon Villain Justin Clemens , Melbourne : Hunter Publishers , 2009 Z1596555 2009 selected work poetry 'In Villain Justin Clemens invokes the spirit of medieval French poet, vagabond and thief François Villon, through his bold, contemporary translation of Villon's famous ballads but also in new work, ranging from the violent and obscene to the lyrical and sublime - sometimes within a single verse.' (From the publisher's website.) Melbourne : Hunter Publishers , 2009
y separately published work icon Beneath Our Armour Peter Bakowski , Melbourne : Hunter Publishers , 2009 Z1596565 2009 selected work poetry 'Beneath Our Armour's portrait poems cover vast tracts of history, geography, and personae in a way that is at once intimate and epic. Intimate, because Bakowski imagines his way into the lives of people as radically disparate as Cyril Connolly, Diego Rivera, Sylvia Plath, and Elizabeth Smart. Epic, because he transports us from Old Macau to Bedford Square London, and even Lower Templestowe, and from pitched battles to civilised dinner parties.' (From the publisher's website.) Melbourne : Hunter Publishers , 2009
y separately published work icon Travelling through the Family Brendan Ryan , Melbourne : Hunter Publishers , 2012 Z1870036 2012 selected work poetry 'Travelling Through the Family bring rural Australia to life through a clear-eyed and provocative vision of the way the land and our treatment of animals moulds the people who work with them.

Family, its histories, inheritances and bonds form a powerful core to the collection. There are homages to fathers and daughters as well as self-portraits where the influence of a country upbringing is rendered in sobering, resonant style.

Travelling Through the Family is an assured and beautifully crafted new book from one of Australia's finest contemporary poets.' (Publisher's blurb)

y separately published work icon Devious Intimacy Ann Vickery , Melbourne : Hunter Publishers , 2015 8681576 2015 selected work poetry

'Devious Intimacy combines a sly, playful wit with a melancholic tenderness to navigate the complex terrain of difficult feelings. Vickery's poems move effortlessly between the private world of love and sexuality to wider forms of connection, teasing out how past histories and literature underscore contemporary human bonds and how we imagine ourselves in light of neighbours, nationhood, and the environment.'

y separately published work icon Content Liam Ferney , St Lucia : Hunter Publishers , 2015 9017482 2015 selected work poetry

'In his latest collection, Liam Ferney focuses on the deep contradictions at the heart of modern life. Content is a hand grenade tossed into the middle of polite society.

'Ferney uses the argot of politics and the internet to tackle religion, war, love and late capitalism. This is fast paced poetry that is explosive, critical, and engaged.' (Publication summary)

y separately published work icon Not Fox nor Axe Chloe Wilson , Melbourne : Hunter Publishers , 2015 9082075 2015 selected work poetry

Women knit at the foot of the guillotine. Hundreds of blackbirds tumble suddenly from the sky. Red Riding Hood's grandmother speaks from the belly of the wolf. Santa Lucia offers you her eyes on a platter. These poems present a panorama, by turns historical, mythical, and modern, of horrors and absurdities both familiar and obscure.

''Perhaps not fox nor axe, but something gives us chase' - and the only thing more difficult than bearing witness is turning away.' (Publication summary)

y separately published work icon Year of the Wasp Joel Deane , St Lucia : Hunter Publishers , 2016 9569308 2016 selected work poetry

'In 2012 poet and writer Joel Deane suffered a stroke. Suddenly he was a poet without language. Year of the Wasp tracks Deane’s journey to rediscover his poetic voice.

From these deeply personal origins Deane’s third poetry collection rises to confront the realities of politics and culture, language and love in contemporary Australia. It is a journey of poetic transfiguration that produces a work of unrivalled power, emotional intensity, and insight.' (Publication summary)

y separately published work icon Music Our Bodies Can’t Hold Andy Jackson , St Lucia : Hunter Publishers , 2017 12932318 2017 selected work poetry

 'This book continues Brendan Ryan's exploration of place and belonging that resonate in country towns. From the lives of farmers, abattoir workers, and dog walkers to the history of Aboriginal dispossession; from a tour of the communities of the Mt Noorat Football League in Victoria's isolated Western District to moments of wonder on back country roads celebrated with gentle irony. Here is a view of the country that is both contemporary and wry. Lyrical and rich in narrative power, this is a collection that dismantles the idealised rural pastoral with an empathetic and incisive voice.' (Publication summary)
